St. Pat's Card

Some time back I was the lucky winner of some digital photos from Iralmijashop and one of the sets I picked out was one that featured St. Patrick's Day designs. So along with an old rainbow pattern paper that Dee Gruenig sold several years ago and some dies I made a St. Patrick's Day card.


The rainbow pattern paper was die cut with a Memory Box Cross Stitched Border die and the Fancy Clover die set consists of two dies. An outer one and then the fancy inside design. So each die could be used separately as well. They are from Cheapo Dies.

This will be one of the cards I will send to the shut-ins. I hope they will like it. It doesn't show up too well but that rainbow paper has some glitter infused in it so it looks much better in person. For some reason I could not capture it in the photos I took.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Scrapy Land #84-Anything Goes
Dies R Us Challenge #92-Use Pastel Colors

Well, the weekend is upon us. So no doubt I will be taking a break. This Sunday is Jack's baptism. So we are looking forward to that and hope the big storm holds off  until all get back to their homes safely. You have a great weekend too and thanks so much for the lovely comments you leave me.

God bless,
Verna

Oh how pretty. Love that paper, and the fantastic filigree shamrock. I have some of the Dee Gruening rainbow paints. I'm loving these dies you've been using, and the vintage Irish lass is just sweet! Pretty composition, and many blessings for Jack's Christening. TFS & Hugs
